Alcoi gets ready


Alcoi has one of the larger Moors and Christians Festivals in the area. It is set around the day of the town's Patron Saint, one Sant Jordi, better known to we Brits as Saint George.

When we passed through today preparations were well in hand even down to a local hat shop being able to supply turbans for each and every one of the Moorish bands.
